what about me?

I've been teaching English for over 20 years. Which is surprising, perhaps, given that I didn't start out wanting to be a teacher. Instead I first wanted to be a dancer and spent a year at London Contemporary Dance School. But, deciding that I needed more food for the brain, I switched gear and came back to Switzerland to study English and German literature and linguistics in Zurich. Among the highlights of my academic career were the two years at University of Illinois at Chicago and at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. But now I truly love living in Switzerland, where teaching has become one of my major hobbies apart from working for Madurai Seed, walking, reading, travelling and talking to friends.
